Chase the Sunset at TJ’s Tiki Bar

Is there anything more romantic than a sunset? Relax and enjoy front row seats to the Florida Keys’ magical colored skies, right here on the beach at Tranquility Bay. Oh, and don’t forget to try one of our tiki bar’s famous Key Lime Pie cocktails for a taste of the tropics!

Fall (or dive) a Little Deeper with Turtle Island Watersports

Enjoy moments that will last a lifetime as you plunge into the Gulf of Mexico and discover the secrets beneath. See the only living coral reef in North America and meet the locals; colorful tropical fish, and more.

Relish a Romantic Meal for Two

Romantic retreats and good food go together like… well, you and your partner. And food doesn’t get much tastier than at Marathon’s number one restaurant, Butterfly Café. We recommend the famous Key Lime Pie to share for dessert!

Bathe in Each Other’s Company… and in the Sun

Beachside or poolside – there are plenty of peaceful spots to relax and soak it all in. Head to the adults-only relaxation pool for total, uninterrupted tranquility or feel the powder-soft sand on your toes at our 2.5-acre private beach. We’ll save you a lounge chair.

Discover an Ocean of Serenity

The best way to explore the Keys is from the water and our transport of choice is the simple kayak. But don’t worry, we won’t tell anyone if you decide to just float away from reality for a while.
